Joe CSS

tunebook 135 tunes.

Hi! I am Joe, originally from London, currently in Bristol, who knows where next. I play fiddle, started off as an Irish musician, but the past few years I’ve been more into English and Scandi tunes. I do a bit of rapper dancing, for my sins.

I have a Youtube channel I sometimes play tunes on: https://www.youtube.com/user/Joe1729

I’ve written some tunes, I’ll use my bio here as a place to keep them. I’ll update as I transcribe them.
Feel free to use them however you like, if you wish.
